Changes to Weekday Schedule

Changes to Weekday Schedule

As announced in the Parish Newsletter last Sunday, please be advised that from next Monday 10th September 2018, there will only be two weekday Masses: at 7:30am and at 6.00pm, Mondays to Fridays. We regret that the weekday 10am Mass will be discontinued.

If you require a mid-morning Mass during the week, St Mary’s in Hampstead offers Mass at 9am; St Margaret’s in Kentish Town at 10am; and Our Lady of Hal’s in Camden Town at 12 noon.

In addition, weekday Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament resumes, but it will take place daily (Mon-Fri) from 5.00pm until just before the 6pm Mass.

The Saturday Masses remain unchanged at 7:30am, 10:00am (followed by Adoration and Rosary), and 6pm (Vigil Mass).

Sunday Masses also remain unchanged at 8:30am, 10.00am, 12 noon, and 6:00pm.

Thank you for your understanding, and we hope you will join us in silent prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, asking the Lord to send more labourers into His harvest!

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary

The Rosary Shrine invites you to come and celebrate Our Lady of the Rosary’s feast day at her Shrine in London! On Saturday 7th October, join us for a Solemn Mass celebrated at 12 noon by Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP, followed by a reception in Blackfriars Hall.

Then, on 7th October at 7pm (after the 6pm Vigil Mass), there will be a torchlit Marian Rosary Procession in the church. In this centenary year of Our Lady of the Rosary’s apparitions in Fatima, this statue will be taken in solemn procession around the Rosary Shrine church every Saturday in October at 7pm.

We hope you’ll join us in prayer and thanksgiving for Our Lady’s favours granted through the Holy Rosary.

As St Padre Pio said: “Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother.”

Daily Adoration

Daily Adoration

“I want to encourage everyone to visit – if possible, every day – especially amid life’s difficulties, the Blessed Sacrament of the infinite love of Christ and His mercy. He is reserved in our churches but often abandoned. Visit Him to speak filially with Him, to listen to Him in silence, and to peacefully entrust yourself to Him” – Pope Francis.

Beginning on 14th September 2017, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on the main Altar of the church for adoration. This will be done every weekday after the 7:30 am daily Mass (i.e., from around 8 am) until 9:45 am, just before the 10am daily Mass.

This is in addition to the Holy Hours at 7 pm on Wednesday (during the Youth 2000 Prayer Group); 5 pm on Thursday, and 10:30am on Saturday.

The Lord says: “Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:23). So, let us go to him, present in the Blessed Sacrament, and let us receive his mercy, his strength, and his peace. May the Lord Jesus renew and refresh our parish and all who come to this Rosary Shrine.
